Your words: "...who has migrated into a new country."

The clue: "...who migrated to a new country."

You used almost the exact same wording in your complaint about the wording.

if you read properly he used "migrated to a new country" both for immigrant and emigrant, but showing that the discintion is, that one is leaving and the other arriving. Not sure if you actually missed that or trying to outsmart someone (it sort of seems if you deliberately left the important part out of the quote)

Agreed. "From another country" = immigrant. "To another country" = emmigrant.

Agree. Although I suppose that's because I usually hear it used in the context of "to jimmy open" a door/a drawer/something with a lid or opening that is shut tightly to the rest of the object, with little space to pry. Which is what a crowbar does, of course, but when I hear "crowbar" I think of hardcore lifting/opening, like with a trapdoor or something. "Jimmy" implies a small space/object/area where it's stuck, at least to me.

In UK it is what rugby players do to get the ball during a game, that big ruck thing they practise all the time. Isn't it? Not always a friendly thing.

I also think of it as a short fight, like a scuffle. Not friendly really.

A scrum is much different from a scrimmage. I think in the UK unofficial matches are known as frendlies.

The big ruck thing is a ruck, unless it's a maul, but it could be a scrum.

A ruck's when the ball's on the ground. A maul is when it's in the hands. Both of those are passages of open play. A scrum is more 'formal', I guess. It's a way of restarting the game after a minor infringement.
